Simpson's Explorer

Fly to the edge of wilderness country traversing all three mountain ranges of the West MacDonnell Range.

Crossing the Larapinta Trail, you'll explore Simpsons Gap and it's crystal clear waterholes from the air, before tracking to Mt Gillen, the highest point in this range and part of the ancient Aboriginal legend of the dog spirit ancestor 'Uk-nool-ya'.

Then penetrating deep into the East MacDonnell Range, you reach Emily Gap, a significant place in Caterpillar Dreaming to the local Arrernte people. This flight offers great photo opportunities with panoramic aerial views of Central Australia.
